NEW HARTFORD ---- On Saturday members of the New York State United Teacher's Union marched in Solidarity with Remington Arms workers.
On Friday, some of the last remaining workers at the Ilion plant were furloughed. The workers said the company has not provided them with the benefits that they say they are entitled to.
NYSUT members marched in front of the local NYSUT headquarters with signs expressing their support for the workers.
"We're all unionized, we're all looking out for each other and supporting each other's causes, obviously guns and school don't mix but, in this case, this is the workers, it's supporting their livelihood and their families," said Norma Chrisman, Executive Vice President of the Central New York Labor Council and President of the MVCC Professional Association.
Numerous court cases regarding the furloughs and employee benefits are being held in court.
